Sea to Shining Sea
America's stunning national parks usually get top billing, but they're far from the only places to enjoy some of the nation's best scenery. If you'd prefer not to battle the crowds for a little slice of heaven, consider a state park for the next weekend getaway (and, if you're there on September 26, you can celebrate National Public Lands Day, too). Many of these state parks are just as stunning as their more well-known siblings, and just as budget-friendly. Pro tip: bring your face mask and prepare to do some social distancing, as both are required at most state parks.
